If you wish to be in a long term relationship, then you gotta have the habit mentioned above. If you don’t have it, then cultivate it, because really, that’s one of the more crucial thing for 2 ppl to stay tgt I feel. To be a part of it, no matter how big or small the event is. To ask your partner how is the day like for them, even though the answers might be the same 8 out of 10 times. To show them that, see? I want to be a part of your life, and I’m putting in so much effort.
And no, don’t expect this to be a one way thing. It’s not going to last. It’s going to be too tiring on the poor bloke/lass.
Just like how you need 2 hands to clap, 2 angry person to start an argument, you also need 2 committed and loving people to make a relationship work.
